Eco-Friendly Tile Roofing System - Polyfoam Corp. - Facility Management Product Release
The Ecoset tile roofing system for steep slope roofing is specifically designed for California's Title 24 mandate and other building codes that are beginning to implement energy-efficient guidelines for the construction industry.
The Ecoset system consists of a waterproofing underlayment, a layer of expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation adhered by ribbons of a two-component polyurethane free-rise adhesive and an approved roofing tile adhered to the insulation by individual paddies of Polyfoam's adhesive. The R-value of the five-part Ecoset system is 10.68. Testing shows that the Ecoset system reduces peak heat flow through the roof deck by approximately 80 percent versus a dark heat-absorbing shingle in the summer, according to the company. Ecoset also limits nighttime heat loss in the winter by nearly 70 percent compared to direct-nailed shingle roofs.
